Showing off magnetism at the Atlanta Science Festival

On Saturday, March 26th, members and friends of the Brain Imaging Group taught hundreds of excited young scientists about the science behind magnetism and MRI! Our booth was one of several from Emory University and was entitled “What’s in your noggin? Using MRI to look at your brain.” It was a fantastic opportunity to reach out to this next generation of explorers, from youngsters in preschool through scholars in college. The Atlanta Science Festival is in its third year and featured over 100 exhibits from universities, high schools, and private corporations. We were delighted to be a part of this, and look forward to continuing to spread science in the years to come!
